Editorial Reviews

A love triangle gone wrong, MURDER BALLAD centers on Sara, an Upper West Sider who seems to have it all, but whose downtown past lingers enticingly and dangerously in front of her. This sexy, explosive new musical explores the complications of love, the compromises we make, and the betrayals that can ultimately undo us.

As of this writing, the Union Square Theatre is presenting the new chamber musical, "Murder Ballad: A New Musical." With a book by Julia Jordan ("Sarah, Plain and Tall," "The Mice"), and lyrics by both Jordan and composer Julianna Nash, this four-person rock musical bills itself as a "cautionary tale" about a modern-day love triangle gone awry. The strong cast features Tony-Award winner Karen Olivo ("West Side Story," "In the Heights") as Sara, the young housewife and disenchanted mother, her loving husband, played with brutal honesty by John Ellison Conlee ("The Full Monty," "1776"), and her lover, eerily portrayed by Will Swenson ("Priscilla: Queen of the Desert," "Hair").

As the title indicates, someone does not survive the evening's story, and we are assisted through the story by Rebecca Naomi Jones as the Narrator, a present-day Rod Serling who paints the various moments that guide us through the characters' struggles. The story is straight-forward: Sara (Olivo) settles down with Michael (Conlee) after her relationship with Tom (Swenson) ends due to his inability to settle down with her. However, after ten years and a daughter with Michael, Sara's increasing restlessness leads her to call Tom, and the old feelings are reignited, which are subsequently discovered by Michael. All boils to a head, and, well... no spoilers here.

The soundtrack for "Murder Ballad: A New Musical" is produced by Michael Croiter on the YellowSound Label, and features a five-piece rock band led by Justin Levine on both keyboards and guitar. The music is interestingly varied in scope, while staying reliably in the guitar-rock vain.

This excellent cast recording is the closest you can get to the unforgettable immersive live show at Union Square Theatre. The cast recording has incredible voices singing intelligent, memorable lyrics to hauntingly beautiful music. Run to buy tickets! But if you can't then this cast recording is the next best thing. Of course, it won't have the unbelievable live performances of Rebecca Naomi Jones, Will Swenson, Caissie Levy and John Ellison Conlee, or the brilliant staging, or the wonderful live band! Murder Ballad is destined to become a legendary show.

I'd buy any CD that had Will Swenson singing. I regret I never got to see this show since it is now closing on Broadway. Unique..strong musically.

This duplicates the off broadway rock opera which is a classic likely headed to Broadway. There is no non musical dialogue so this recording captured the whole story
